Details

Coconuts. Who doesn’t love them? The word coconut is thought to have been coined by Portuguese explorer Marco Polo. He thought that the 3 dark holes on their base made them look like a grinning face - in Portuguese “coco”. Ironically, the coconut tree is considered by many people to be the tree of life. Practically every part of a coconut and the tree itself is usable and has always played an important role in the life of tropical people. So what’s so ironic about that you ask? Well, falling coconuts kill an average of 150 people worldwide every year! That’s 15 times as many as sharks! Yikes. The danger comes from the fact that coconut trees can grow up to 100 feet in height. Luckily, this sweet and full bodied tea is best served at table height which averages about 2 feet.
